March Mission of the Month
Easter Baskets!
Sunday, March 31st after Church

Join us after church on Sunday, March 31st, upstairs in the Youth Room to assemble Easter Baskets for the children of military families at Camp Pendleton. Easter Baskets cost $10.00 each to make, and we will make as many baskets as we provide cash to make them. Cash donations may be put in an offering envelope and placed in the offering plate (note “Easter Basket” on the envelope and memo line of checks). Checks can be made out to St. Mark Lutheran Church.
Additionally, we are collecting small candy to put in the Easter eggs for both the Easter baskets and our annual Easter Egg Hunt. Collection will take place through March 31st. Variety bags of Easter candy are welcome.
